Hi Guys Well there I was deploying an under cover team landing on Borneo ( inflatterble and all) when the crew decided to start playing Bingo calling out numbers from here on in, while i sunk two cargo ships off Formosa there they were still calling out numbers even under aircraft attack. Despite the fact my sonar, astek,dont work, and crew looking like cardboard cut outs, the game has great Potencial, In training Itook the sub down to over 100mtrs then it became unstable then at 110mts it went into free fall full reverse could not stop and I died. But the sea bottom looks fantastic, rocks sea weed sand great. roll on the patches

The 1.1 patch and also turning off 'realistic sound travel' get rid of the looping numbers for most people.

And to budrick, there is no sound meter this time around. Escorts usually won't hear you at 1/3 or 2/3 speed, so try to keep it at that speed or standard tops while submerged if you want to be silent.

no sound meter !!? the manual clearly states that there is ,, so this means another screw up by ubi with this game and how come there is no height meter for the scope? as for the bingo calling ,i have the game set at zero realistic and i still get it.the quicker they get a second patch out the better. this game reminds me of galactic civilizations with all the bugs showing up .

Just got the game and I'm reading the manual while the patch downloads.

The "Noise Meter" is mentioned in the "Gameplay Settings" section of the manual.



No Noise Meter: When selected, the noise meter - which gives an indication of how detectable your submarine is at the moment - will be disabled. (2%)

So I think you just need to unselect that option.

It's not an "option" in the game is his point.

whether selected or not selected ,it makes no difference ,it just isnt there even though its supposed to be..
also concerning the bingo calling being an offshoot from the CP causing it due to a cracked version ,i am using a legit version i bought at my local gamestop ,so another prob for ubi to sort out ..

One of the "Great Truths" of the software industry is that the writing of documentation ALWAYS falls to the lowest senority, least experienced member of the team; ... or it may even be outsourced to someone who knows nothing about the software! (Lead programmers have much more important things to do!)

I think you have probably just seen a manifestation of this truth. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

How many times have you found errors in WINDOWS documentation??

Well...as far as I see they could easily take the SH3 manual and built the game (SH lV) around it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

At least they wouldn`t screw the things up the way they did.

Windows is an operating system. It evolves over numerous years, adapting to newly released software and hardware. It can do a big load of things like play games, movies, browse the web, utilize thousands of programs and so on.

Silent Hunter 4 is a game. It pretty much has one thing to do. Play properly. From release. Not one year later.

Stop using the windows-analogy. It's quite flawed. Only losers compare to things that are worse than themselves, winners compare to the flawless top. Something SH4 definitely can't.

Well, well, looks like somebody knows how to argue a point. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Let's break it down, shall we??


Stop using the windows-analogy.
Ok here he opens with a recommendation. Standard so far.


It's quite flawed.
He follows with the argument. Good so far! Now all he needs is the supporting evidence.


Only losers compare to things that are worse than themselves, winners compare to the flawless top.

Aaaaand there's the irrelevant, ad hominem attack. Whoops, there went any of his credibility. Better luck next time.

We don't need posts or posters like that here.
